to provide the customer express that we want to provide, we have to whip out a lot of the technology that was there before. all of this legacy stuff that we have to rip out. we take out the bunch of rubber bands to get at the data we need to build the customer express we want to offer. and the reason why we do this is because every single year, there are three things that pop the new year's resolutions list. one people want to save more. they want to spend less and they want to pay off debt. big challenge, specifically in this country, is that banks fundamentally make money by keeping customers confused. i'm not trying to be overly controversial about -- maybe a little bit. but when the banks incentives are to make money off overdrafts, they make more than 50% from peace in charge, then their interests are not necessary aligned with yours. and so when it comes time to get have clean interfaces that allow you to really understand how much money you have, it's the banks incentives to target that overdraft fee, there's a mismatch of incentives. even if you go outside of your bank to try

technology the past 40 years nasdaq has been around and certainly innovation have gone hand in hand but only makes up 25% of our companies. so many of our companies have just revolutionized their individual businesses, whether it is costco or a starbucks. we've seen them really go in and been disrupttores in their individual business. they like the family of companies that they're associated with, that surround them at nasdaq and so it's just not about technology anymore. it is really about those industry leaders, those global leaders who want to innovate and continue to continue to grow the businesses and feel very much at home in our family of companies. adam: bob mccooey, senior vice president, corporate client group. all the best to you. >> thank you. lori: going out on a him. one analyst says there is chance president obama could resign next year. charlie gasparino with the man who made that call next year. adam: box office where stars that don't deliver despite getting pretty big paychecks.

infrastructure? >> if the engineer had dropped dead we have technology that would automatically be able to see the speed the train was traveling, be able to detect a curve and stop the train. it is an automatic brakes control the train should have had and most countries already have that. so the government has to do that because those may private sector have to think in terms of profit as opposed to their lives. the federal government has to negotiate. connell: they are already doing that in new york on metro-north, it is just not mandated yet. this happened before that went into effect. >> that is where the federal government comes in. god knows we need controls and regulation, and we have to make certain technology is there. dagen: should taxes supplement that? supplement commuter rail and those things commuters use by taxing people driving into the city. >> we would not even have to think about having additional taxes placed on taxpayers who are already overburdened if we close the loopholes that are involved, increase the taxes, lowering the taxes for the wealthiest. they should be closed.
believe that will remain and technology needs to develop to meet that base demand. >> one of the big success of smartphones is cost of data. is that going to come down? >> i think this will, of course, bring things down. we need to be more efficient in our equipment. but also the scale will push down the price of the hand sets. we made the rough calculation that will reduce the dollars on a smartphone, 100 million people on this earth can afford it. and this is a scale of markets where basically the same technology is very important. >> one of the problems i think i have is not speed. i know we talk about 3g to 4g. it's actually capacity. it doesn't matter how fast you go, if it gets full, it doesn't work, right? how is capacity going to change? >> a couple of things. first of all, you need to invest in capacity and operators in general are doing that. secondly, we that spend $5 billion u.s. a year, we need to have even more sophisticated technology that can handle more and more data loans, more and more frequencies. that's where we're doing all the time to actually capture that and

, here is my take on a fascinating story that mixes travel, technology, and standards of personal behavior. this story emerged on twitter, that in itself is a sign of our times. it's thanksgiving day, a flight delay. a woman is giving the gate agency and everybody else a hard time because she wants to be with her family. not hanging around an airport. she's obnoxious. another passenger tweets out the story as it progresses. the woman gets on board she is fuming. the flight attendant tries to placate her, not working. the guy sends out tweets, he can hear her breathing five rows back and he's the guy tweeting out the story and sends her a glass of wine, and says if she drinks it she will able to use her mouth. and it's war. she sends back her own note. i'm sorry their family, they have to deal with you. he responds with another note, this time it's obscene, please don't show it and tweets out a description of her. it's a real fight. played out via twitter to an ever larger audience as the wordz words picks up and the war on in the air. and the plane lands and she slaps his face. h

especially when it comes to technology? that's a contradiction, it, kayleigh? >> it's true that's a contradiction yet, i think that americans, one thing that we have we're well-rounded. there's an emphasis on sports, on other activities and an emphasis on entrepreneurship and all of those things combine to make a well-rounded wholesome individual. that being said the lack of academics, the lack of education can have a real effect in generations to come. if we don't remedy the issue and em bolden our schools and create well-rounded individuals it's going to hurt in the long run. >> i've got to tell you something, we've got a false security in talking technology stuff. when i go to hospitals and look at the surgeons, i see, i don't know, maybe it's because i've been to new york and california and well over 50% of the top surgeons are either-- weren't born here or their parents weren't born here. think about silicon valley for a moment and the companies created right now. about 40% are from people from outside of this country. they're begging, they're lobbying washington to let hem

are spending more money, we have more technology being put into education than ever before so we are doing something wrong and we need to figure out what it is. so what do we do with this information? >> there is a lot to learn from this. you know a very important point. if we are spending more. we are spending more than most of the countries in the world and we don't have enough to show for it. also the point is that radical change is possible. upstarred countries like finland and poland, they turn them around. they are using high standard and high regard for teachers. perhaps most hearting for the u.s. we are told many of these countries turning themselves around are using innovation that started in the u.s. but it's not just ideas, it's many implementation. martha: there are so many factors at play here. we'll talk about it in a good debate coming up. so we ask everybody to stick around. good to see you. bill: fox news alert. minutes from now house speaker john boehner on the obamacare reboot. you will see this in a matter of minutes as soon as it starts. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] it s
